Faith and Caleb have arrived in Sunnydale at last, and you know what that means? THE END IS NIGH!
We chat about the creepiness of Caleb, Faith's re-integration into the Scoobies and our poor poor Xander.
Plus we have an extra long 'Five Minutes with Angel' as we talk about 4x16-4x18.
Time for another Angel Package: The Faith episodes!
Andrea and Amanda welcome back Angel super-fan, Julia, to chat about the end of the beast, Angelus, Wes, and Faith.
We chat about how Wes and Faith are really the only good things about these episodes, the frustrating writing, and how we do NOT care for what's being done to Cordelia's character.
Come on down and listen to Amanda, Andrea and guest Lauren have a chat about "Lies My Parents Told Me!"
We talk about the various parent/child relationships in the episode, as well have a tangent (or four) along the way.
Oh! Hello there gentle listeners! Are you ready to listen to your faithful hosts Amanda and Andrea talk about 'Storyteller' and all the ways they enjoy Andrew, with their guest Alicen?
Then look no further! We talk about recording for posterity, speechifying, and our fondness for the 'guestage'. Also, if you don't normally listen all the way to the end, we'd recommend doing it this time around.
So Miss Piggy and Robin Hood head into a desert... no wait, that's not how it goes! This is no happy puppet show and Kermit's definitely not hanging out in the desert with the creepy shadow men. Andrea and Amanda have opinions on these guys and are loving Buffy's attack on the patriarchy! Even if this was a muppet show, Buffy would still find a way to get in one of her inspiring speeches... we have thoughts on those as well.
Everyone's going on dates and it's a horrible idea, according to Giles. He's half right.
We chat about the Robin Wood revelation, Xander's continuing bad luck with the ladies, and how much we adore Andrew. (Yup, Amanda's finally on board)
Time for us to chat about some changes that Willow's going through, about the Scoobies finally sharing Amanda's concerns about Giles and Spike's horrendous headaches.
It's the beginning of the year, and here on Tiny Fences that means it's time for us to take a look back at the year that was! That's right, it's time for the third annual Year in Review!!
It's the final episode of 2017!! Are you ready for tangenty goodness while we chat about 'Potential'?
As we say in the episode we wish one and all a wonderful holiday season no matter what holiday you happen to celebrate!
It's "Showtime" for Buffy in the fight against the First. After an infiltration by the First into the house, Buffy has to show the doubting Potentials what she's capable of.
Over on 'Five Minutes with Angel' things continue to just be generally terrible.
No more 'the demon' folks! We finally know (well, Amanda does) that the First Evil is back in Sunnydale to cause all kinds of trouble.
The ladies chat about Spike, the problem with Willow being so powerful, and what the heck happened to the Watcher's Council.
Amanda and Andrea are talking about the Spike-centric "Sleeper" today.
Andrea's mum gets some serious shout-outs and the ladies take a brief tour to tangent land in the form of the Grey Cup and the CFL.
Here's a link to the opening and ending of the seminal Canadian children's classic, "The Friendly Giant"
Time for Amanda and Andrea to have a conversation about 'Conversations with Dead People'!
It's one of Andrea's favourite episodes, and we essentially spend the podcast heaping praise on the writers, actors, director and editors.
And then we talk about Angel....which is another story entirely
ALSO! SPOILER WARNING! Spoilers for both seasons of Stranger Things from around 24:03-25:36 and for Firefly starting when Andrea mentions Jonathan Woodward for about 30-45 seconds.
What the heck is going on with Anya?! That's what Amanda would like to know! She has a lot of questions about Anya's past that just don't have answers.
We get an episode that feels like a bit of a throwback to 'old school' Buffy', trying to solve a high school mystery.
Amanda has a sad realization and Andrea just really loves how excited Buffy is about her new job.
We're excited that Willow's back and that there's an actually creepy MotW for a change!
Amanda and Andrea get back to the swing of things, chatting about some of 701 while they chat about 702. While it's pretty lousy plot-wise, it's an episode rich in character development.
The girls compare Nancy to your friend who's never seen Buffy, chat a lot about Spike, and Amanda wonders if Principal Wood is sinister due to his shockingly white teeth...
Amanda and Andrea welcome special guest Kevin T. Porter of Gilmore Guys fame to chat Buffy in general and 701 in specific.
In our most tangenty episode in a while we talk about the series, podcasting and film music.
NB: We have a small amount of explicit language in this episode
We can hardly believe we're already at the end of season six! Amanda and Andrea welcome back Lauren to chat about 'Grave'.
Giles is back, Buffy's out of the battle and it's time for the humans to step up and save the day.
It's time for the first half of the season six finale "Two to Go", we chat a lot about power and how Willow and Buffy deal with it, also how we see the point in which Buffy loses her battle to be the one to save Willow.
Oh man, here we go, the real big bad of the season is finally revealed, and it is TERRIFYING (and amazing).
Amanda and Andrea chat a lot about the morality that exists in the Buffyverse, and continue in on how much they can't stand Warren.
(We also have a quick little note at the beginning about our thoughts on Kai's essay.)
Amanda and Andrea sit down to have a not fun but good conversation about 'Seeing Red', and the terrible, horrible things the audience is witness to in it.
'Entopy' may be defined as the "lack of order or predictability; gradual decline into disorder", but in this episode things are also coming together, Dawn and Buffy, Tara and Willow, as they also 'decline into disorder' for other relationships.
It may not be the best episode ever, but it's certainly our favourite 'bridge episode' in a long time.
